  4. Support renaming of AF elements and attributes

    PI Vision does not support the renaming of AF elements or attributes or the movement of them within the hierarchy. After renaming or moving these objects, symbols referencing them will show No Data in PI Vision.

  5. Offline Display Management: Allow PI Vision displays to be imported and exported

    There is a need to be able to export and import PI Vision displays so that displays can be managed offline. This would allow transferring displays between systems that are not connected, taking backups of displays, versioning displays, sharing displays with customers, vendors, and third-parties, etc.

  6. Events Table: Show attribute values

    Be able to compare attributes from multiple similar events against each other in the events table symbol.

    User Story: As a process engineer, Lalit wants to compare attributes from similar events to one another in a table and sort by the columns of the table SO THAT he can use the attribute values to compare the events to one another.

  9. Font Size

    Can we have the option to specify font size for all symbols? There is currently no way to set font size in tables, bar chart/gauge, scale values in trends, etc.

  11. Integrate PI Manual Logger into PI Vision

    PI Manual Logger is a product in need of a major upgrade.  The web interface is a step in the right direction.  Integration into Vision would be a big plus and give very good convergence between the two technologies.

    We are aware of the interest in this integration, but at this time we do not have plans to integrate PI Manual Logger with PI Vision. I have updated the status of this item to reflect this.

  12. Allow sharing a display with edit permission

    As a display creator, I want to give other users edit permission on the display so we can collaborate in creating the display and so that other users from my team can make needed changes when I'm not available.

    This functionality is currently planned for the PI Vision 2020 release.

    A new report is planned that will show the count of total views and unique users that have accessed a display over a specified time period.

  14. Trend: Show data item descriptions

    Be able to view the tag/attribute descriptions on the bottom of the trend the same way that you are able to in ProcessBook. For those of us with large DB, it is very important to have this functionality.

    We are currently researching this item and evaluating it for a future release.

    If you have a moment, please let us know if you have a preference for how data item descriptions should be displayed in trends. For example, would you prefer to be able to configure the trend legend to show the item’s description, that the descriptions be shown under the plot area of the trend, or would you like them to be displayed in another way?

    Let us know what your preference is by adding a comment below.

  15. Bar chart and stacked bar chart

    I have summarized energy data for kWh consumption by day for buildings and plant that is written at specific end of shift day week points.

    I'd like to be able to have this display as a stacked bar where the various plant consumption components are shown as a proportion of the bar and the height of the bar is the sum of the components.

    Classic stacked bar chart.

  17. Multiple y Axis

    Currently ProcessBook and coresight trend only provide one Y axis.
    We would to have 2 Y axis to plot different parameter for an asset. Example: Flow parameters can be plotted on Y axis on the left and temperature can be plotted on Y axis on the right"

    Each trend in trend group must have one horizontal (X axis) and two vertical axis (Left Y and right Y). Users should be able to assign a tag plot to either of the Y axis in trend

  18. Multistate: Make visible/invisible based on data item value

    Change graphics based on a data item value. For example enhance the multistate functionality so that is it possible to make a symbol visible when a tag/attribute value is equal to 1 and invisible when equal to 0 (or another condition).

  19. Switch between elements in PI Vision mobile

    As a user of PI Vision on a mobile device, I need to be able to use existing element-relative displays on the mobile website and swap between assets so that I can dynamically see relevant data for multiple pieces of equipment. The asset dropdown list should be available on mobile.

  20. Trend: Show cursor values while dragging

    As a process engineer, while dragging a trend cursor I'd like to see the process values. Currently, I can only see the value once I drop the cursor, I need to see the values WHILE dragging the cursor so that I can quickly identify problems in my process.

    This feature was available in previous versions (PI Coresight) and in ProcessBook.
